While at the same crop in Bonita, I also was working on some Artist Trading Cards, better known as ATC's, which are little works of art done in a 2.5" x 3.5" format. I was a bit behind, so I was catching up a few months, as well as trying to work ahead some. I'm doing these for to swap with some of the ladies from the Hilltop Memories group.
The first, the theme was Trees
The ATC is done on Kraft card stock. I stamped the trees and colored with some Smooch inks and embellished with bling.
The next one theme I worked on was Steampunk.
I worked on Kraft cardstock. The gears, adventure word, and hot air balloon came from a stampset by Darkroom Door Stamps called Steampunk. I also used a flocked transparancy from the Fancy Pants It's the Little Things paper kit and the ribbon is from My Minds Eye. You can barely see it but the hot air balloon is colored with Smooch Inks and I used some dimentional adhesive to build up the sign on the hot air balloon.
The last ATC I worked on was themed Vintage Halloween
I first embossed the card with the Tim Holtz spider web, then used a irridescent embossing powder. From there I added the glitter pumpkin which was one of the Petaloo Dazzlers. The black cat was a Tim Holtz/Ranger die which I embossed in black.
If you haven't seen them yet, the Petaloo Dazzlers are very cute. I also bought some Frankenstein ones just because I couldn't pass them up. They have some Christmas themed ones which will probably go into my shopping basket very shortly.
